Re: Looking to catch ride from Sacramento to Reno or BRC

If you're in Sacramento around noon today - I can take you. Doesn't look like you will be but thought I'd check!

Ride Offered from Sacramento to Reno on August 26th

Hi Loves! UHaul fucked me over and moved my truck rental to Rancho Cordova, so I'm flying into Sacramento and picking it up. I have TONS of room for gear (empty UHaul) and room for ONE burner. I cannot take you into BRC - the truck will be full by then. I CAN get you to Reno. Hit me up if you need t...

Re: At what time does it start getting cold at night?

Sunset. Sunset. Sunset. Get your ass back to camp for something warm, or bring it with you. I go from a skirt and a tank top to sliding leggings under the skirt and throwing my winter coat on, pretty damn fast. <3

After two burns in a 2 person Coleman Sundome tent with a little aluminum shade structure over top, I finally FINALLY ordered a Kodiak tent yesterday. I am beyond geeked to stand up in my tent. STANDING is such a luxury I had not realized. I was at the burn for 10 days last year and vowed to have a ...

Thanks for posting this Ratty! I completely agree - we, as a community, and BMORG, do need to address diversity in our population and how we welcome that. I understand we are comfortable expressing ourselves...that's not what I'm talking about :)

I agree with Badger. Based on my experience with their support, they are pretty on top of things. I would expect a reply in a day or two from when you sent your request. I do not believe there is any wristband or anything like that. Just be sure to be early and on time for the return trip!
